Following the record-breaking success of 2018’s The First Purge, which became the highest-grossing film in the notorious horror series, Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes returns with a terrifying new chapter written by franchise creator and narrative mastermind James DeMonaco. The Forever Purge is the fifth and final installment in The Purge franchise, and features Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Josh Lucas, Cassidy Freeman, Leven Rambin, Alejandro Edda, and Will Patton.
De la Reguera and Huerta play Adela and Juan, a Mexican couple who escapes from a drug cartel and ends up stranded on a Texas ranch. There, they’re at the mercy of the group of outsiders who plan to unlawfully continue the Purge. The Forever Purge, directed by Everardo Gout, was delayed from its original release date due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but is finally going to release in theaters this Friday, July 2. Critics have started releasing their reviews of the film, so let’s check them out.
